Place to find which different years/models used parts will fit your vehicle.

Have a couple older trucks 90 chevy, 98 ram.. make some runs to u pull it for parts.. used of course. Wondering if anyone knows a site where one can find out what different years and models that have parts that will match up?

thanks much

Generally vehicles of different makes [GM, Dodge] don't have interchangeable parts - you need to stick with the same manufacture. I used to have a buddy in the junkyard business and he had a big book that listed all the interchangeable parts - I'm sure there is an online version, I just don't know where

I miss going to the U-Pull yards.
Given you are looking at dimestics, it should be fairly easy to find common parts across the Dodge Rams and the GM trucks. Dodge for sure is known to break their vehicles up into generations. Knowing what years are in the same generation as yours helps.
A quick wiki search for the dodge indicates it's a second gen. A few minor changes where made to the truck in 97 and 98 so depending on what parts you are looking for....

Here is some info for the Dodge. You should be able to do the same for the GM. That will help when looking at what years fit your trucks.
